Unashamedly, immodestly, and without hesitation I’ll lay claim to the best description of a presidential candidate of all-time: my quip that Dennis Kucinich is “a congenital bellhop.”
But here comes “David Kahane” (the pseudonym of a “writer in Hollywood” who presumably doesn’t want to find that his brakes are dead next time he drives down from the hills) with a slightly longer description of Hillary (Hillary-lovers avert your eyes):
She was every guyâ€™s first wife and his first mother-in-law rolled into a pantsuit.
To be fair, there’s a mild conceptual borrowing in that from P.J. O’Rourke’s description of her as “Hugo Chavez in a pantsuit,” but this new one cuts through the political muscle down to the existential bone of the woman.
